Flesh vs. Love
This is something that has been the essence of what many relationships and marriages are based on. This is a very deep subject that most people have only touched the surface on but I’m going deep. From the beginning of time this has been the big issue and down fall of over 80% of all relationships. It has been because of flesh, and most of our world has been turned upside down and back again. I say back again, to bring attention to those that have been through hell and back just to make the same mistakes again and again, never learning. Women that get with men for all the wrong reasons; thinking that God has just sent you your knight in shining armor, your end will come fast. Just because he has a hard rock body with the six pack abs. You dream of a man looks, and think about all of the things you want him to do to you has a crippling on your dream.
What happened to the standards you’ve set for yourself; or all of the dreams and goals that you wanted to accomplish in your life. I want you to think about this because you’re putting your life on the line when you go after the Flesh. Let’s talk about love for just a minute, can we? I’m going to give you the definition of love and I want you to analyze this word when it comes out of your mouth, when you say, “but I love him”; after he disrespects you, cheat on you, stop spending time with you, he stop telling you he loves you. Let’s familiarize ourselves with the definition that Webster gave to the world on Love: 1. is an intense feeling of deep affection, 2. a deep romantic or sexual attachment to someone, 3. a great interest and pleasure in something. Now I want you to stick with me to include this definition that Webster has given to us. I want you to think to yourself for a minute about love. Now tell me one thing that drives a person to love like this (talking about the definition of love). Your answer is the flesh; it drives every aspect of this type of love. Flesh drives temptation faster than a speeding bullet and quicker than you can blink your eyes. Flesh can have you going against everything that you’ve been taught in church and at home. Now this is the kicker to flesh, it only has power for a short period of time. That beautiful body will soon fade because father time will have his way; the six pack abs is now flab, that hard body is now soft. Now what is it driving your love? Now tell what’s keeping you with him? How can you continue? Where do you go now? What part of the flesh do you love now? You have kids now and according to the definition of love; everything that drives your love has change.
Flesh has tuned your life upside down and now you’re back again. Try loving his heart before you put your life on the line, because love has nothing to do with flesh. I understand this is a shock to you, but hold on I’ve got more. I understand women love is so deep and it’s hard for some men to understand the depth of true love. If this is true, you must ask yourself if he reciprocate these same feelings to you. My next question is how do you know this? I’m not trying to cause you to end your relationship; I’m trying to get you to think about your life and stop your heart from getting broken. Being in a relationship can be a wonderful thing to be in, but it can also bring destruction into your life. If your love is not being reciprocated, you need to end it; this is not an easy concept but the best one. Most of the time when we find out we’re in a bad relationship, we tend to try and fix what’s broken. It is ok to put your problems behind you and move on.
